You asked, we listened. Benefit from automatic design options that allow users to efficiently modify vessel design to save time.
Another major effort in this release is the inclusion of longitudinal weld seams, enabling the placement of nozzles to avoid interference with those weld seams. PV Elite 23 users can visualize and automatically populate weld seams.
Fabricators can view the default information for seams and easily detect the relationship between items such as how close nozzles or clips are to weld seams instead of having to calculate manually. PV Elite 23 follows code considerations for nozzles approaching various weld seams, giving warning when they are too close.
